Take me away! The Daisy Fuentes for Kohl’s Spring Summer 2013 collection definitely had a getaway vibe. There were elements of gypsy throughout, with headscarves and floor length skirts in paisley and medallion prints. Crochet made an appearance in the form of cropped sweaters and dresses. Mixing in contemporary looks, the looks showcased something for everyone. The black diamond lace and leather shirt with ivory trousers was unexpectedly chic. And the scarf print boxy top with ivory shorts has some closet staying power.
